Problem: Fit second degree parabola equation {{1996,1997,1998,1999,2000},{40,50,62,58,60}} [ Calculator, Method and examples ]

Your problem `->` Fit second degree parabola equation {{1996,1997,1998,1999,2000},{40,50,62,58,60}}

The equation is `y = a + bx + cx^2` and the normal equations are

`sum y = an + b sum x + c sum x^2`

`sum xy = a sum x + b sum x^2 + c sum x^3`

`sum x^2y = a sum x^2 + b sum x^3 + c sum x^4`

`X``y``x = X - 1998``x^2``x^3``x^4``x*y``x^2*y`

Substituting these values in the normal equations



Solving these 3 equations,
Total Equations are `3`

`5a+0b+10c=270 -> (1)`

`0a+10b+0c=48 -> (2)`

`10a+0b+34c=508 -> (3)`

Select the equations `(1)` and `(3)`, and eliminate the variable `a`.

`5a+10c=270`` xx 2->````10a``+``20c``=``540```
`10a+34c=508`` xx 1->````10a``+``34c``=``508```

`-``14c``=``32`` -> (4)`
